«The cultivation [of this genuine science of the spiritual world, elaborated for years past, and in important particulars already published] is to be the task of the Anthroposophical Society. It will endeavour to fulfill this task by making the anthroposophical spiritual science cultivated at the Goetheanum in Dornach the centre of its activities, together with all that results from this for brotherhood in human relationships and for the moral and religious as well as the artistic and cultural life.»

Initiative-Forum for Refugees

Once a month, the Anthroposophical Society in Switzerland provides a forum in which people from different places of origin, living in Switzerland for a shorter or a longer period of time, can tell the stories of their life. Through their stories, those who seek protection in Switzerland are also able to express their current needs, while in the exchanges afterwards, accompanied by snacks and drinks, there is the chance that greater help becomes possible. Anyone interested is kindly invited. The meetings take place at Oberen Zielweg 60, 4143 Dornach.
